Seattle Seahawk defensive tackle “Rocky” Bernard was booked into the King County Jail early this morning for a domestic violence related assault. Bernard—whose full name is Robert Eugene Bernard Jr.—was, according to sources, celebrating his birthday at the Ibiza nightclub on 2nd and Yesler.
The Seattle Seahawks have not yet responded to requests for comment.
UPDATE: According to the police report, Bernard got into an altercation with an ex-girlfriend—who is also the mother of his child—while at the club. The report say Bernard punched the 21-year old woman in the forehead, which sent her backwards into a glass divider.
The report says the woman ran out of the club with a friend, and into the friend’s car. While the woman was inside the car, Bernard stood against the vehicle, pounding on the windows.
The woman drove to a “safe location” and called 911. Officers called Ibiza to locate Bernard, who was later arrested at the club.
No charges have been filed, but the City Attorney’s office says the case should be forwarded to them tomorrow morning.
